Reporter faked the news

As director of the group that creates and maintains The New York Times
full-text database, I would like to assure you that no articles are being
removed from the files.  Corrections and editor's notes have been appended
to the fraudulent documents.  This is a continuing process and more such
corrections may appear in the future.

This is how we always address errors in The Times.  We never change the
text as published, but attach a correction at the end of the article with
the phrase "Correction Appended"  inserted near the top.
